PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF YESHIVA UNIVERSITY H.S. OF B'KLYN 
2270 CHURCH AVENUE, BROOKLYN 26, NEW YORK 




I RANSITION is not merely a single force in Man's life — it is a unique, in- 
tegral facet of his existence, the unchanging constant of change. For in 
all the universe, only the Almighty is immutable. All else is in a transitory 
state. 

Cyclical and methodical, the change that is a component of nature 
brings day and night, spring and fall, hot and cold. Sometimes purposeful, 
often haphazard, the transition that man wreaks on the personal level of his 
existence affects us all. 

This change, the result "of a constant striving for the perfection of 
heaven, that is Paradise, rejuvenates society in the repeating pattern of 
nature. The threads of each man's personal transition become part of the 
vast fabric of change which records the story of mankind.

ADMINISTRATION 



|HE Administration is responsible for tine physical, mental, and 
spiritual well-being of the student body of YUHSB. It has, as al- 
ways, concerned itself ably with every aspect of our curriculum, 
with our best interests at heart, and with our physical facilities 
and our extracurricular program, so as to provide a well-rounded 
education. 

Student requests were always fully considered in reaching 
administrative decisions on all levels, in order to achieve mutually 
satisfactory solutions.

DEING a distinctive and unique part of the school program, our 
morning studies are a special source of interest to all students. 
Inspiring religious guidance and learning are offered by its highly 
capable Rabbis, who are renowned leaders of many of the city's 
Orthodox communities. This year, the entire school undertook the 
study of the tractate Makkoth, which was exhaustively parsed with 
most D'U/nSQ. The choice of the D'ann "13n, it was well 

received in all the shiurim. Although major emphasis is placed on 
Talmud, the student also receives a strong foundation in the basic 
beliefs of Judaism which will insure his adherence to our code of 
ethics.

I N ANY subject or profession, English is a basic tool. The complete English 
language background offered by our mentors during the required four year 
course arms us for success in any future endeavor, and serves as a focal 
point for the articulation of many interests of the students. 

Consisting mainly of a background in literature and technical English 
for underclassmen, and American and English literature for juniors and 
seniors, the program was recently expanded to include preparation for the 
College Boards and the State Regents Scholarship. The evidence of the 
success of this addition is in our consistently high scores and vi/inning per- 
centages on these examinations.

rOREIGN languages, with a total requirement of six years of 
study — four of Hebrew and two of either French or Spanish — form 
the bulk of our varied curriculum. To supplement these required 
courses, YUHSB students are offered a third year of French for 
Regents credit, an elective of Jewish Philosophy that has attracted 
many seniors with its intriguing concepts and, often, an optional 
course in Latin. 





Mr. Maurice Mashal 



Rabbi Wilfred Wolfson 



3INCE science and technology have gained added importance in 
this atomic age, the science department has become increasingly 
popular. The optional courses of chemistry and physics have 
gained a following almost as wide as that of the required general 
science and biology. All courses made use of the expanded lab- 
oratory .facilities. 




math 




A FAVORITE among many students, Math in our school is taught 
by highly popular instructors. The mathematics branch of the fac- 
ulty has been enlarged in number and strengthened in quality dur- 
ing our four-year stay in YUHSB. The requirement was extended 
from two-and-one-half to three years; and many pupils take advan- 
tage of electives to complete another full year of advanced study 
with one-term courses in Advanced Algebra and Analytic Geometry 
and Calculus.

Mr. Arthur Becker 





Mr. Sidney Zuckoff 



Mr. Lowell Sanders 



(t is the weighty responsibility of the social studies faculty to 
teach the student body the basics of good citizenship. Through 
three-and-one-half years of geography, world and American history, 
and economics, and a term-long political science elective, YUHSB 
students are given a broad education that guarantees historical 
perspective and an insight into the economic and political forces 
in our society. 



Rabbi Simon Raskin 



Mr. Morris Purcell 





minors 



JMALLEST in the school, the Minors Department serves the stu- 
dent body effectively and unobtrusively in art, music, and physical 
educaiion. The most prominent aspects of the art course are its 
emphasis on the fundamentals and history of art, while the music 
program stresses the appreciation of the famous classical works. 
In physical education new developments included the addition of a 
gym room and the acquisition of weightlifting equipment, a reduc- 
ing machine and various body building apparatus in line with the 
National Fitness Program.

Mrs. S. Shapiro, Mrs. Z. Masliansky, and Miss Z. Scheinberg, the 
staff was ably aided by two students, Ari Sommer and Lionel Cohen.

UNDER the leadership of Mr. John Santiago, the Maintenance

of vital school problems, Marv freed the 
Service Squad of corruption during his 
term as captain. He will triple jump from 
Brooklyn to City, to get away from Mr,

I HE primary function of a yearbook is as a record of change and 
transition, and of the achievements of each class. Providing a 
showcase for the class and year of 1964, this year's Elchanite has 
attempted to continue the tradition of high ratings while reaching 
new heights of quality and originality. 

Under the editorship of Chaim Feller and Michael Novick, the 
yearbook's design and shape departed substantially from its pre- 
decessors. With the supervision of Advisor Mr. Harry Allan, who 
offered invaluable assistance, use was made of all the creative 
facilities and talents in the school.

G.O 



Assuming the responsibility of co-ordinating the extra-curricular 
activities in the school, the General Organization, representing the 
entire student body, decides vital school issues at Student Council 
meetings held twice a month. The Executive Council, comprised 
of a president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer, conducts 
these meetings. 

This has been a year of innovations and expansion for the G.O. 
Under the leadership of fall term President Harry Shapiro, a career 
opportunity series revitalized the assembly program, and, on an 
elective basis, the club program was continued. The High School 
Bowl, introduced last year, attained fixed status as it became an 
exciting function of the I.Y. The fall term also saw President Shap- 
iro representing the school at the Albany Youth Conference.

G.O 



Spring term President Paul Nussbaum also introduced vigorous 
new policies, arranging for Intramural High School Bowl. Working 
diligently in organizing and directing the senior trip to Washington, 
he surprised his constituents with an unprecedented school outing 
to the World's Fair. 

As always, one of the most important undertakings of the G.O. 
was the assembly program, with the year's schedule including 
Arista and freshman orientation, a basketball rally, career education 
session, an open Student Council meeting. Varsity debates, an 
elections assembly, and H.S. Bowl games. 

The annual affairs of the G.O. such as the Chagigot and 
Variety Nite, were carried on with enthusiasm and success, and, 
on the monetary side, the organization finished with a sizable sur- 
plus of funds. Ably aiding the council at meetings was faculty 
advisor Mr. Joseph Strum.

I HE judicial branch of the G.O. student government, the Student 
Court tries those students reported by the Service Squad to have 
committed an offense. 

Each alleged offender is called before the five-man tribunal, 
presented writh the charges against him and given the opportunity 
to defend himself. After due deliberation, the court renders its 
verdict. If convicted, the student who has no previous record is, 
given a w/arning, whereas those with previous records are punished 
with writing assignments or detentions. 

Under the influence of fall term justice Irving Bodner, a leader 
in the drive for a religious renaissance in YUHSB, sentences 
of attendance at the Minyan or the Mishmar have been meted out 
as well. 

Mr. Joseph Strum is the Student Court's advisor and acts as 
a steadying influence on the sometimes over-zealous members of 
the bench.

In its fifth year of association with the National Honor Society, 
Arista reached new heights. Composed of those students who have 
excelled in leadership and studies, the society and its members 
have tried to become models of school service, scholastic attain- 
ment, and love for learning. 

Forged into a unit by the heat of controversy, the members 
tried to make Arista a better and more functional organization by 
revising its constitution and extending its activities. 

Ably guided by Advisor Mr. S. Lebowitz and President Chaim 
Feller, the group originated a basketball squad, elected to go to 
two Broadway shows, published a literary magazine, and had two 
induction assemblies while continuing its program of student 
tutoring. 

Other officers were fall term vice-president Leonard Tribuch 
and secretary Thomas Uvegi. During the spring term these offices 
were held by Henry Gastwirth and Harold Obstfeld.

BULLETIN 




Editor-in-Chief Marvin Bayewitz, Editorial Advisor Michael Noviclc. 




LONCERNING itself editorially solely with school affairs for the 
first time in its history, The YUHSB Bulletin became a controversial 
and respected newspaper, Highly popular with the student body. 
Its hard-hitting editorials, attractive layouts, and authoritative, up- 
to-the-minute news articles gained it a large and eager following. 
Under the able leadership of Marvin Bayewitz, The Bulletin for 
the first time made use of editorial cartoons, carried a number of 
feature articles, and ran a weekly column of opinion around the 
school. Published a record number of times over the course of the 
school year, The Bulletin made frequent appearances, sometimes 
as many as three in a single week, presenting timely news in a 
vigorous manner.

The Topics 



EDITORIALS 




IMOW in its eleventh year as YUHSB's printed newspaper, the 
Topics serves not only as a vehicle of student opinion and crea- 
tivity, but affords students a first hand opportunity to learn about 
all aspects of journalism — writing, editing, make-up, layout, head- 
line composing and typography. 

Pursuing an editorial policy designed to motivate both the stu- 
dent and the administration to take utmost advantage of the high- 
school career, Editors-in-Chief Jacob Brettholz and Gary Schiff ran 
a series of curriculum editorials and several on the old problem of 
student indifference and lack of participation. 

The Topics' ever-popular features included lively Bret and 
Brett, the interesting interviews of Meet the Faculty, and Harold 
Bretstein's Sports Slants, as well as the annual Topics poll and 
articles of satire and humor. 

To maintain its high journalistic standards, the Topics is a 
member of the C.S.P.A., and has been awarded three first places 
and a second place rating in our four years in YUHSB.

New books have arrived, filling the ever-increasing demand 
for scientific and sociological references. Led by Arthur Feuerstein 
and Bernard Oster, under the direction of Mr. Robert Bassell, the 
library has made available more of the fine works of literature that 
it possesses. Student interest has transformed the English Library 
from a mere storeroom into a citadel of knowledge, enabling it to 
fulfill its true purpose.

LELEBRATING its Bar Mitzvah year, the Hebrew Library has grown 
from a small reference collection of two hundred books into a large, 
well-organized repository of our five thousand volumes. 

Guided by the venerable Rabbi Joseph Epstein and headed 
by Sheldon Kier and Seymour Fertig, the library has increased its 
usefulness to the student body. Many seforim of interest have re- 
cently been acquired in addition to the world-famous Berlin Collec- 
tion. Though busy cataloguing, the staff has found time to publish 
a literary magazine, the Sifriyon. 



MINOR 



YUHSB IS graced with a large number of periodicals that cover 
many fields of endeavor and provide a mode of expression for its 
many talented students. Produced by a hard core of able, dedi- 
cated students, they can be published only infrequently because of 
restricted amount of material in their precise fields. 

The school's literary magazine, The Review, made its first ap- 
pearance in three years under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief Sey- 
mour Fertig. It enjoyed a brisk sale at a nominal charge, and a 
second issue is being produced this year. 

By far the most widely circulated of the periodicals was The 
Yugar. Under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief Hal Bretstein, 
YUHSB s official basketball publication was distributed to every- 
one at Varsity home games, and was thus read by students of many 
schools. 

Exploring the broad field of science was The Atom, a printed 
photo-offset publication artfully and interestingly produced by a 
capable staff led by Editor-in-Chief Harv Weisman. 

The Sifriyon was until this year a publication of the Hebrew 
Library. It now deals with literary efforts in Hebrew, and its first 
issue in its new format, arranged by Editor-in-Chief Chaim Stein- 
bach, was well received. 

Rounding out the odd lot of magazines were The Dialect, a 
foreign language publication with articles and features in French, 
Spanish, and Hebrew: and The Corollary, which dealt with the in- 
tricate field of mathematics, on many levels of interest.

AINTAINING proper decorum and enforcing school rules, the 
Service Squad, under the jurisdiction of Vice-Presidents Paul Nuss- 
baum and Edward Martin, enjoyed one of its most efficient, effec- 
tive seasons. 

The Squad, whose job it is to enforce Student Court regula- 
tions, did so admirably with a tightly knit group of about 25, less 
than half the usual size. 

Marvin Bayewitz and Eli Garber served as captains during the 
fall term, while Charles Kaner and Dennis Waldman held those 
positions for the spring term. Under this leadership, with the aid of 
the Student Court, the list of offenses was revised to become more 
practical and effective.

I N the festivals of Chanukah and Purim, YUHSB students illumi- 
nate the atmosphere with the joyous spirit of Chagigot. The seniors, 
who are regrettably forced to miss classes for preparation of the 
sandwiches and decorations, worl< with diligence and perfection. 

Led by Chaim Feller and Moshe Sokolow, this year's celebra- 
tion featured performances by the Glee Club and band, inspiringly 
original poetry by Senor Cantor and D'rashot by Rabbis S. Drillman 
and H. B. Kanatopsky at Chanukah and Purim respectively. 

Fortunately, this year the administration has taken a profound 
interest in the Chagigot. It was with their assistance that the hilari- 
ous Purim songs were presented and a whole two days were al- 
lowed for the Chagiga's preparation. The Chanukah Chagiga, how- 
ever, which did not benefit this guidance, saw an equally packed 
house and a skit entitled "Take Your Books and Your Coat." 

In order to maintain the true holiday spirit, the singing of tra- 
ditional Nigunim were innovated at Purim.

UUTSTANDING among our extra-curricular program, Variety Nite 
1964 proved to be a smash hit with a wide array of professional and 
amateur talent. 

Produced under the creative guidance of Paul Nussbaum and 
aided by assistants Chaim Feller, Moshe Sokolow, Gary Epstein 
and Gary Levine, this year's performance, "The Pioneer Spirit," 
featured a folk-singing quartet, Gary Schiff on the piano and our 
own Adrian, presenting original Spanish folk music with his guitar. 

Emceed by a member of the English faculty, Mr. Arthur Arluck, 
the evening was highlighted by the school Glee Club, Bernard 
Marinbach's Brooklyn College freshman band and an hilarious skit. 
Witnessed by a near-capacity crowd, the show was held in George 
W. Wingate High School and was both a theatrical and financial 
success. 

Special thanks are due the administration for their generous 
and sincere cooperation in the production of the affair.

CENTRAL COMMISSION organized to coordinate the religious 
activities in YUHSB, the YOC includes the Minyan, the Mishmar 
and the Kashruth Commission. Supervised by Rabbi P. Yogel, the 
Yeshiva Organization Commission has continued its policy of pro- 
curing matzot and vi/ine for Pesach and has sponsored various re- 
ligious events during the school year. Among these Vi^ere the Sim- 
chat Bais Hashoevah, held at the Y.U. succah, and the T'shuvah 
assembly addressed by Rabbi S. Drillman. 

With added vigor in the field of Kashruth the boys, guided by a 
mysterious YaD, increased the amount of care taken in the purvey- 
ing of victuals. 

Another important phase of YOC activity is the annual Charity 
Drive, headed by Martin Gold and Thomas Uvegi, which this year 
operated very successfully in its campaign for P'eylim and Ezras 
Torah, netting a sum unparalleled in school history. 

Finally, through an effort to stimulate a greater interest in 
Yahadut, a daily Minyan, attended by forty to fifty boys and Rabbi 
S. Faivushevitz, and a weekly Mishmar, both headed by Chaim 
Feller assisted by Philip Chernofsky, have this year gained new 
popularity among the students.

MLTHOUGH a newcomer to I.Y. competition, High School Bowl, 
"the inter-yeshiva battle of brains," has already become one of the 
most popular and widely discussed activities. 

The contest, based on T.V.'s College Bowl, pits a team of four 
scholars from one Yeshiva against a team of equally quick button- 
pressers from another. Usually played before an assembly, the 
half-hour game of wits involves all the tenseness, emotion and au- 
dience reaction of a basketball game. Working with fine teamwork 
and led by Captains Michael Novick and Gary Schiff, our Varsity 
has compiled an outstanding record. 

In contention with its forerunner for popularity was a highly 
successful Intramural H.S. Bowl program, instituted on the initia- 
tive of Harold Obstfeld and Michael Novick and culminated in a 
school championship game. 





Fall Term Debat- 
ing Manager Moses 
Rosengarten. 



LAGUED by the loss of most of its debaters via the graduation 
route, the YUHSB Debating Varsity fell upon unusually hard times. 
Following consecutive losses to Flatbush, MTA, RJJ and HILI, BTA 
found itself in last place. 

The big controversy this year was whether the Debating Man- 
ager should captain the Varsity as well. Bulletin editorials attacked 
this while Manager Moses Rosengarten vigorously defended the 
status quo. 

Spring term Debating Manager Issac Tuchman added two 
extra debates to the forensic schedule. The debators spoke on 




such controversial topics as the bussing of school children to elimi- 
nate de facto segregation and the admission of Red China to the 
U.N. 

In addition to the inter-yeshiva competition, zealous debating 
addicts managed to complete an intramural debating schedule de- 
spite student apathy. After five debates in the fall term, the cham- 
pions were class 5A in the senior division and 3A in the junior 
division, and a playoff was scheduled. 

Most of this year however, was spent training undergraduates 
for next year's team, which both managers believe will be vastly 
improved.

LOMPETING in the Interscholastic Mathematics League, the Math 
Team, though plagued by inexperience, managed to wind up in a 
top position in the thirty school league. Coached by Rabbi Louis 
Cooper and captained by high scorer Leonard Tribuch, the team 
lost the local to strong Erasmus and Tilden. With strong potential, 
the team plans to expand its schedule and quality of performance.

1 UHSB TOOK an increasingly active and successful role in the 
Inter-Yeshiva High School Student Council, which arranges all 
inter-school contests except Varsity basketball. The league, which 
consists of YUHSB, YUHSM, Ramaz, RJJ, Flatbush and Hili, is 
student-run and arranges meets in a wide variety of events, from 
Track to H.S. Bowl. The council further arranged two social events, 
the presentation of awards, an essay contest, and published an 
inter-school newspaper, the I.Y. Eye, with a circulation of 2400.

I HE YUGARS, defending champions of the MJHSL, started off the 
season on a strong note with an exciting 70-68 victory in the Alumni 
game. Two weeks later, they extended their Madison Square 
Garden winning streak to four games by beating Flatbush 44-31. 

Quick victories over RJJ, Elizabeth, and Flatbush raised hopes 
that the Yugars might repeat as champions. But the loss of four 
starters from last year's team soon began to tell, and a cliff hang- 
ing, one point loss to Ramaz was the first in a series of heartbreak- 
ingly close defeats. Although the Yugars bounced back strongly 
to defeat RJJ, 69-63, Hal Bretstein's broken finger and Mike Rein- 
hard's twisted ankle deprived the Yugars of just that extra punch 
they needed, and they lost the last five games for a disappointing 
5-7 record and a fifth place finish. The Yugars placed third in the 
Chanukah Festival, where they established a Festival scoring rec- 
ord by beating MTJ 80-59. 

The annual league Ail-Star game saw the Brooklyn-Long 
Island team, coached by Irv Forman and including four Yugars — 
Harold Bretstein, Paul Nussbaum, David Hershkovits and Bernard 
Weiner — lose a squeaker to their Manhattan-New Jersey opposition. 

Coach Forman and the Yugar's faithful fans can look forward 
to a promising season next year, however. Four of this year's start- 
ers, Dave Hershkovits, George Silberman, Mike Reinhard and Ber- 
nie Weiner, are juniors, and there is an excellent crop of sopho- 
mores on the bench.

J.U. 



IN PROVIDING a training and testing ground for future Varsity 
basketball stars, the Junior Varsity serves a significant purpose. 
This year the Junior Yugars enjoyed a fairly successful season. 
Coached by Elliot Aaron, they compiled a 5-3 record. 

Coach Aaron emphasized fundamental basketball and main- 
tained strict discipline at his practices, and the team demonstrated 
good team play and coordination. 

Outstanding on the team were sophomore Captain Michael 
Friend and freshman Mark Honigman.

HE YUHSB Aquamen captured first place in the I.Y. league this 
year for the fifth consecutive time. Coached by an ex-Aquaman, 
Harvey Gralla, the team w/as sparked to its 6-1-1 record by Captain 
Thomas Bloom, who w/as undefeated in both the two-lap backstroke 
and medley events in ail but one meet. 

Co-captain Alan Bigel proved to be another strong man on 
the team, which tied for first place with Flatbush, and emerged 
victorious in a playoff for the championship. 

With the exception of Captain Bloom, the entire team, man- 
aged by J. Grunfeld, is composed of juniors and sophomores, and 
it stands a strong chance of bettering its performance next year.

" LARGE number of so-called minor sports, with large follow- 
ings, able participants, and winning records, abound in YUHSB. 

In its second year as an I.Y. sponsored sport, the Soccer Team 
placed first with a 4-1 record. Captained by Alex Hornstein and 
Joseph Beatus, the team was lent experience by a troupe of Israeli- 
born players. 

The Handball Team, undefeated in first place, owes its success 
to the unbeaten doubles teams of Capt. Sam Borger and Seymour 
Shapiro; Capt. Ed Martin and Henry Shimansky; and Philip Kerstein 
and Harvey Sparer. 

One of the most popular of the minor sports is Bowling. Our 
team, another first-place trophy winner, with a 7-1 record, is cap- 
tained by Sam Borger, while Harvey Sparer and Stuart Rosen are 
co-captains. Amassing colossal team records, the squad is led by 
Sparer, Scop and Borger in averages. 

The YUHSB Softball Team, favored to win the championship 
this year, is captained by Alan Scop. A fine rotating battery, con- 
sisting of Scop and Ed Martin, and sluggers Harvey Sparer and Co- 
Captain Eli Garber contribute greatly to the team's victories. 

The Cindermen, our Track Team, have compiled high scores 
and a winning record despite an expanded program of events 
that included for the first time, the shotput. Captain Alan Scop and 
Morris Berger score consistently in broad jump and high jump, 
respectively, while Co-Captains Rubin Englard and Moshe Sokolow 
pick up valuable points in the 70 and 100 yard dashes. The half- 
mile relay team — Mike Ravetch, Berger, Englard and Scop — has 
been clocked at 1 :40.4. 

Rounding out the array of squads is the Tennis Team, new to 
I.Y. competition. Already, however, it has displayed its winning 
form with Captain Marc Singer unbeaten in singles, and Robert 
Naimark and Burton Rabinowitz forming a very strong and coordi- 
nated doubles team.

extra-curricular activities, gives the average student an opportunity 
to display his athletic abilities in team competition. Basketball in- 
tramurals form the core of the contests, drawing the students' in- 
terests. This year saw the innovation of stickball intramurals, which 
added to the already popular foul-shooting, ping-pong and bowling 
events, formed a well-rounded athletic program. In conjunction 
with the late President Kennedy's physical fitness program. Class 
7C was victorious in the fall term's basketball competition, while 
class 5A copped the school's first stickball championship.

In an age when all seems so volatile, so ephemeral, when a 
Cuban Crisis or a Berlin Crisis renders all man's endeavors subject 
to a sudden and violent end, the young thinker seeks something 
permanent, something not subject to end. 

He soon rejects his material possessions for their inconstancy. 
Life has taught him this. 

Perhaps reason will satisfy the need for the eternal. But has 
not confidence in the sole right of man's mind brought him to im- 
minent disaster? 

Wherein lies this perpetual positivity? What shall not pass or 
perish? Perhaps it will be man's will to live, his faith in life, his un- 
dying spirit.

Eagle of greatness is he. 

Born to grandeur 

but destined for greatness. 

Eagle is serene and noble 
but never proud. 
Greatness, 
never grandeur. 

Swift was Eagle's ascent 'top the white-domed crest. 

Beside him perched was his Peacock, 

the admiration of the creatures, 

the harmony to the grand symphonic sense. 

Splendid the domain of Eagle. 

He watches with piercing eye, 

and pensive soul. 

The creatures rest on Eagle's wings 

like his fledglings the pair, 

but ah his freedom, 

hark his resounding call, 

view and again witness that soaring, 

soaring o'er all, 

majestic, 

never majesty. 



Black the day the hunter punctured the Paradise. 
Eagle his target. 
Eagle has fallen. 

Recall upon whose wings stood the creatures 

and the fledglings. 

Recall the now matted plumage of Peacock. 

Recall that majestic soaring, 

that sight, 

that sense. 

Golden Eagle has returned 
to the silver piece.

"But I am afraid to step outside tomorrow. This is my last night 
fettered and let me enjoy it and forget about tomorrow." 

"What is there about tomorrow that you fear so, that you want 
to live today forever?" 

"Tomorrow I leave school to take a job alone. I never thought 
about it before. I never knew how it would be, alone, with no one 
to oversee, no one to bring problems to. I don't want to stoop for 
or step on people to climb ladders. I was never worried about it, 
but suddenly, here tonight, I feel alone." 

"Have you no friends?" 

"Only where I come from; None where I'm going."';; 

"Surely they will not desert you." 

"They will, as surely as I would desert them. There once was 
enough for all. I could have had without taking. But now everything 
I get will have been taken from someone who will fight as hard to 
keep it as I will to take it." 

"So you are afraid." 

"No!" 

"But you whimper. You dread the fight you have given your- 
self. You want to die now and never reach tomorrow. You never 
had to fight before and you realize that the real fight will start to- 
morrow, and you back away from it." 

"No! I am not afraid! I do not whimper!" 

"You are afraid to be alone. You are afraid you will be stepped 
on — !" 

"Yes! Yes! I am afraid. I'm afraid when I start stepping I won't 
know how to step. When I start climbing I won't know how to climb. 
And I'll be stepped on and I will fall, fall. . . ." 

"If you are afraid to fight you will never fall. For you never rise 
to fall nor step to be stepped on." 

"I must go on, must I not?" 

"You must." i ,;., 

"I wish I had no need to." ,ip

rememherance 





It began to secrete fluid, and a milky whiteness of viscous 
strands slowly floated around its body. Its fuzzy vegetable green- 
ness whitened, and as it trembled, passing into semiconscious- 
ness, a tubular form solidified and glowed opalescent against the 
leSfy background. 

It could feel, in the hazy dimness, liquids coursing through its 
body, milkily drifting around him in the sweet, cloying never-never- 
land of sugary darkness, feeding and changing the placid body. 

Time passed — ages, it seemed, — as the thing, softly encased 
in a womb-liice limbo, grew and metamorphosed. Its chalky case- 
ment stood in stark relief against the leaves — now white against 
green, now dim grey on red and orange and brown. Its whiteness 
plastified, attaching to the thing's body, and the thread-limned, 
paper-thin flaps, took on the scarlet, brown, and golden hues of 
life, as living fluids throbbed in. 

Suddenly, it was time! 

Pounding, the fluids seemed ready to explode. The thing 
stirred and strained, then burst from its casement. 

Flight! 

Thought: bursting colors harsh, strident, annoying! 

Where?! 

It flapped wildly, searching solace from the storm of noise and 
brightness, the chaotic kaleidoscope of nature that whirled about 
it What!?. 

It fluttered its strange new appendages and set out in eternal, 
yet ephemeral, search for the quiet, dim, peaceful cocoon. 

— Michael Novick 



dawn 

Darkness and void are the sole sensory perceptions. Ominous 
breezes of thought begin to fill the air. Fear of an unknown adven- 
ture streams through the murkiness. With a crash of thunder a 
luminous streak is seen hurtling through the contrasting darkness. 
There is light. And it is good. Now in the warmth of the dawn of 
creation man's head emerges from the darkness of the womb into 
the glowing light of thought. 

— Arthur Kaye 



I S the Jewish religion of such nature that its faithful adherents must 
be enemies of culture and progress? Are the only alternatives 
either to abandon religion or to renounce all advancement along 
with all the noble gifts which refinement and education offer man- 
kind? 

Although we declare that if our religion demanded that we dis- 
card what is called civilization we would obey unquestioningly, 
there is no such pressure being placed upon us. Judaism has never 
remained aloof from true progress. In every era its followers were 
fully abreast of contempory learning. However, secular subjects 
were always secondary to Torah, and the ways of the modern world 
subordinate to Torah living. Yet, those who have persevered have 
not been deprived culturally, even though they do not smoke their 
cigars on the Sabbath, even though thev do not seek the pleasures 
of the table forbidden by the Torah, even though they do not dese- 
crate the festivals for the sake of profit or enjoyment. 

So, indeed, we are not a narrow-minded people, closed to sci- 
entific theory or the enlightenment of human thought. Nor do we 
wish to evade the complexities of twentieth century development. 
Conversely, we drive directly into the center of conflict, always 
searching for the answer, always seeking a solution. One thought, 
however, remains paramount in our minds: the Alm-ghty is above 
us. We must fear him. We must observe his commandments. We 
must follow the precepts of Judaism. 



But what is this Judaism that we so frequently refer to? Is it 
a religion? A nationality? 

Judaism as it has come down to us from our forefathers is the 
gift and the word of G-d, an ineffable sanctuary that cannot be sub- 
jected to human judgment. It is the ideal given by the Creator to 
all the generations of the House of Jacob, never yet attained but 
always to be striven for. It is the great edifice for which all Jews 
and Jewesses are born to live and die, at all times, in every situa- 
tion. Comparisons are futile. Judaism is not a religion; the syna- 
gogue is not a church; the rabbi is not a minister. To be a Jew is 
not merely a part time job. It is the sum total of all human endeavor. 
To be a Jew in the synagogue and the kitchen, in the office and in 
the factory, as father and as mother, as servant and as master, 
with one's feelings and one's thoughts, in word and in deed, in joy 
and in sorrow is to like. An entire life supported by the Divine idea 
and brought to fulfillment according to the Divine will. 

It is foolish, therefore, to believe that it is the mere wording of 
a prayer, the notes of a synagogue melody, or the order of a special 
service which creates Jewishness. It is, rather, the measure of 
understanding and belief — faith, that characterizes true Judaism 
and brings about a closer relationship between man and G-d. 



SHIFTS IN REALITY 



Thus, the Jew goes out into the world already armed with his 
faith. The stronger this weapon, the more universalist will his views 
and aspirations be; the more joyfully will he applaud whenever he 
sees truth, justice, peace and the enoblement of man prevail; the 
more joyfully will he devote himself to all true progress in civiliza- 
tion and culture, provided that he will not have to sacrifice his 
Judaism but will be able to augment it. He will ever desire prog- 
ress, but only in alliance with religion. He will not want to accom- 
plish anything that cannot be accomplished as a Jew. Any step 
which takes him away from his Judaism is not a step forward, is 
not progress. He exercises this self-control for above his material 
desires there stands G-d, and to Him and His Sefer does the Jew 
devote his life. 

It is the belief of the truly religious intellect that one's devo- 
tion to G-d will lead him to the ultimate perfection accompanied 
by the wealth of knowledge that civilization has uncovered. 

— Chaim Feller 



There is one factor in the human experience which is both 
abhorred and welcomed: Change. To that component of life, of 
infinity, all things — nnen and empires, galaxies and bacteria — must 
attribute their rise and demise. 

Throughout history, all of G-d's creations have been powerless 
in the face of shifts in nature. A shift in season kills a fly; a shift in 
the Earth destroys a man; a shift in the universe dooms a planet. 

But there is another kind of change, and man can contend 
with this. A shift in man's social environment, a change from one 
machine to a more productive one, from one set of values to an- 
other, from the reality of the past to that of the present — this is 
man's greatest enemy or greatest friend. 

Whether change is invigorating or debilitating, benevolent or 
malevolent, depends mainly on our attitude towards it. If a civiliza- 
tion exposes itself to the onslaughts of transition, if It looks upon 
new phenomena with an open mind, then that society will gain from 
the encounter and profit from its adversary. 

However, a civilization that attempts to isolate itself from the 
rest of the world — a civilization that dares to defy change-will be 
doomed by the inexorable force of stagnation. 

The greatest test for any civilization is whether it can meet 
the challenge of shifts in reality. 

—Harold Obstfeld 




I STUMBLED on a tin can and walked on past the empty lot. It 
had always seemed to me as if all the garbage in the world was 
dumped there. In one corner of the lot stood a small group of boys 
in tattered clothing. They were amusing themselves by pelting a 
dog with small pieces of trash. The dog was sickly looking. When 
a rock went sailing past its head it just yelped and went on relieving 
itself against an old mattress. 

I turned the corner. The roar of homemade scooters assaulted 
my ears. The scooters were made from fruit crates stolen from 
the back yard of a neighborhood fruit store. Each one seemed to 
be an advertisement for various brands of soda. The boys tried to 
outdo each other, by seeing who could get the largest amount of 
bottle caps banged into his scooter. 

Upon entering the building, the odors of various foods, which 
wafted out from behind the apartment doors, assailed my nostrils. 
Each odor was distinctly discernible. I detected the strong odor of 
garlic and of olive oil. There were many gentiles living in the build- 
ing now. I walked to the end of the hall and mounted the dimly-lit 
staircase. The taps on my shoes battered the steel stairs merci- 
lessly. When it was dark enough, you could see the sparks fly. 
Partly from memory, and partly from habit, I ceremoniously avoided 
a spot on the second floor landing, where as a child I had once 
landed from a flight above. 

At the third floor I turned down the hall, to the apartment where 
I used to live. The hall, which once seemed a dark forbidding 
cavern, now impressed me as just another dim corridor. I reached 
the apartment door. It was painted brown and was decorated by 
the remains of an "I Gave" sticker. The cry of a baby came from 
inside the apartment. I decided not to go in. 

As I left the building, a satisfied but melancholic feeling came 
over me. 

The memories were returning.

That 



Gay 



A YOUNG KID just walked in here one day. You know the kind of 
kid I mean? Real big round cheeks that were rosy and all. He had 
blue eyes and you could see he was scared. I don't mean the 
scared kind o' scared. It's like when the only guy you know at a 
party just ups an' leaves. That's what he looked like. Well of all 
these other kids standin' around, this kid, even though he's the 
greenest, just looks like the nicest. Like the type that could do you 
a favor, without you feeling like you're bein' licked. You know what 
I mean. 

Well I lose track o' this kid for while and I don't get to see 
him for just over a year. He looks a hell of a lot taller and much 
skinnier. Those cheeks are still rosy and all, but they just don't 
look that pinchable. He don't look that scared no more. He's a 
little louder now. You know what I mean? You could see that all 
these punks around him look up to him, but if you look close he's 
not the type to be the out an' out leader. Still too green I guess. 
There's one punk there, a real phony tryin' to be the leader, like 
on purpose, but he ain't kiddin' nobody but himself. 

Well next time me and him meet this kid, he's what they call a 
senior. You can tell that he knows where he's at and just what he's 
doin' there too. Those cheeks turned into straight cheek bones 
and now he's got a face that's hard and looks like it's carved out a' 
wood. He's the leader, awright, everybody knows it. It's just that 
everybody likes it. He's still that nice kinda guy I told ya' about 
before, except now hardly none o' the guys ask him for favors. 
He's too big a man. The reason he's so big is that he don't know it. 

He's the kinda' guy what will join the Marines the day a war 
breaks out. Too bad, but I think he's the kinda' guy that would 
rescue some jerk he don't even know and "who ain't worth it even if 
he did know him. He'd die, an' the guy that ain't worth nothin' would 
live. But he's the kinda' guy who'd do it 'cause it's right. You know 
what I mean.

DOOMSDAY PiiU O^e

HE SKY was overcast and the sun was still behind an enormous 
stretch of cloud. Microscopic particles of radioactive debris drifted 
casually down. The weather was typical for an April day, but the 
nearby landscape, if the vicinity could still be called that, seemed 
out of place here, a bare two miles from downtown New York. 

As far as the eye could see there was nothing save deso- 
lation and an ever-present sense of destruction. Large structures 
were either lopsided or had been toppled by the titanic force of 
the shock wave. Occasionally, one or two structures were standing 
erect as if in defiance, but there could be no defiance. 

Scattered throughout the wreckage were a handful of heavy, 
shielded doors to concrete bunkers which had withstood the tre- 
mendous heat and blast wave of the nuclear explosion. The human 
inhabitants of the shelters were now quietly preparing for a night 
in their homes. 

Many of the lucky few would die from radiation sickness, 
others would pass through a period of fever and nausea and re- 
cover. Some of the foolish ones had left their air valves open dur- 
ing the initial blast. The superheated air had entered, making a 
living hell out of their concrete and steel coffins. 

One of the shelters had a small, previously concealed opening 
adjacent to the door. The automatic rifle still protruded out of its 
secret hiding place, snarling menacingly at the bullet ridden bodies 
of some neighbors. The owner still had his finger wound around 
the trigger, the smirk still on his scorched face, a monument to the 
hospitality of man to his brothers.
